The u3a is a growing local, national and International network of self-help educational, cultural and recreational activities, organised for and by retired and semi-retired people of all ages. 

Welcome to Penrith and North Lakes u3a

  • Group visits inside and outside Cumbria

Special Interest Groups are led by volunteers and cater for a variety of educational, cultural and recreational interests. The Groups all have their own identity and operate in different ways, some meeting in members’ homes, others in hired rooms. (Groups Page)

The Monthly Meetings give people the opportunity to get to know each other and discuss which special interest groups are running or planned. (Read More)
